Gift Basket Of Comfort!

Lil' Missy Lil' Missy
My cousin just had a miscarriage. I've never been through that, but I do have a baby and I could not imagine being as excited as she was and loosing it. I just found out, and I'm sitting here crying for her. I can't go see her because she lives two states away, but I want to send her a gift basket with some comfort items in it. What would you suggest?

I am so sorry to hear about that, it is very heartbreaking and tragic for someone to go through!! All my thoughts and sympathy for your cousin! She is very lucky to have you to care for her, this is a super nice and thoughtful idea.

1. Close2You Towel & Dona, Principessa or Simply Sensual bath set (scrub, wash and lotion, maybe perfume).

2. Massage oil, lotion and massager with the towel.

3. Belle il Fiore products look elegant, maybe with a candle.

4. A good book or movie, super comfy robe and a small assortment of flavored coffees, or candies.

The moment she told me I started tearing up and felt HORRIBLE because I can't go to FL to be with her. Thanks for the ideas!

I think sending her comfort stuff...like candles, fuzzy slippers and robe, chocolate (if she likes it), a nice card, and anything else that you know she likes...I am sure she will appreciate the thoughts.
So sorry for her and your loss. It can be extremely hard...

Just by being there for her to cry to, yell at and talk to, you are really helping!! I am sorry you are not able to go down there to give her hugs and physically be present for her. Keep reassuring her that it is not her fault, she did nothing wrong and that you love her very much and will always be there for her. Also, many people act like the baby did not exist and will not talk about the baby at all. They go as far as changing the subject when the mom brings it up....do not do that, it makes it so much worse, even though it was a miscarriage, the validation that you had a baby and was going to be its mom means so much and is dearly needed. After all, it is part of the family, you just did not get to meet it in person. Hope this helps, I lost a baby years ago and it is still always present.

This may sound strange, but how about an edible arrangement?

Many people think they're happy-occasion-only gifts, but the arrangement that did the most for us was one that arrived after a funeral. We had all just returned from the cemetery, and everyone was feeling sad, mopey and hungry... and there the basket was, so colorful and pretty. Everyone took a piece to nibble and it just seemed to cheer everyone up and gave us something bright and happy to talk about.

Nothing erases the loss, but we do the best we can when loved-ones are hurting. I'm sending love out into the universe and it's earmarked for your cousin.
